TSC Lists Main Challenges Facing it- Latest TSC News

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has listed main challenges that it faces. According to the Commission, shortage of teachers, lack of professionalism and slow uptake of Information Technology skills by teachers.

This information is contained in the latest report by the giant teachers’ employer. The report shows that alcohol and drug abuse, desertion of duty and immoral behaviour affect the effective delivery of the curriculum. The great extent of mental ill-health worries the TSC. The Commission notes that one out of every four teachers seeking outpatient medical services show signs of a mental health disorder.

“The commission has noted with concern that a number of employees with mental health-related cases has been on the rise affecting the quality of curriculum delivery. To this end, the commission has continued to liaise with its stakeholders and partners in sensitising its employees on mental health illness. The commission has also enhanced employees’ medical schemes to facilitate better attention of mental illness related cases,” the report reads in part.

The Commission has also cited insecurity in some parts of the country and unfavorable working conditions in arid and semi-arid areas and hard-to-staff areas as challenges.

According to the TSC, 149,512 teachers enrolled for the controversial Teacher Professional Development which was initially opposed by unions.

The report shows that TSC has decentralised its services to eight regional offices, 47 county offices and 338 sub-county offices.
